. with little forensic value of the scene itself, the m.e. science would start to explain what had happened to this young woman, an accident, foul play. when the trooper spoke with eric at his house just hours after he'd come upon justine's body he talked about a grim scenario that occurred to him. maybe someone unknown had happened upon his wife, a woman in distress. >> he offers a theory that justine was out on the side of the road and that some unknown individual was attracted to her, her beauty and pulled up and tried to abduct her. maybe she was running off. >> you have any suspicions of what might have happened? >> i like to see she got hit and she wasn't scared to land. i think that, you know, these people and somebody out there driving, i think they drove by, saw a beautiful woman on the side of the road and turned around and tried to get her in the car and i think she got scared and started running. she saw their face and they hit her. >> at this stage of the investigation, it could be anything. >> the range is wide open. and we had to start tracking in a direction that made sense.
